Brian's total encounter with Leeches = none except for the one he had to remove from me

... flowing through the countryside and, most spectacularly, the sun rising above the mountain tops. Brian was feeling a little jittery due to the heights (he claimed it was the early morning coffee), but other than that it was a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience we will never forget.
That afternoon we boarded a bus to Thakek, a town further south. It was a strange journey which included "lunch". When lunch arrived we thought it was ...
